In the first issue of the Miraculous Medal Bulletin, Fr. Kevin talks about life being one beautiful, ongoing remodeling project. He states that the remaining Bulletin articles this year will explore the models of heroic virtue who will help remodel us in the image of Jesus. This will include the lives of some great saints who bring us closer to Jesus through their intercessory prayers. Don writes about the deaths of his parents and how they are with him always. Fr. Ramson’s article touches base on Lent and temptations. You will also find information about our Two Million Medals Campaign that we are kicking off this year along with an invitation to our annual May Procession. The spring Bulletin contains our 2019 Spring Gift Brochure. Look for new items as well as the other religious items suitable for First Communion, Confirmation, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day. Our new Easter Cards are also introduced. We hope you will take time to read these articles and others in the 2019 Spring Bulletin.

In the spring issue of the Miraculous Medal Bulletin, Fr. Kevin talks about the three verbs, “to pray, to welcome, and to go,” as ways to deepen one’s Christian spirituality, especially during this season of Lent.  Don writes about using life’s lessons during Lent to live each day full of vim and vigor. In Fr. Ramson’s article he encourages us to open our hearts to the suffering of others, especially refugees. An invitation to our annual May Procession is also included in this issue of the Bulletin along with an invitation to attend the Association’s pilgrimage to Oberammergau in 2020. We hope you will take time to read these articles and others in the 2018 Spring Bulletin. Gifts in our 2018 Spring Gift Brochure are now available for request. Look for the new items as well as the other religious items suitable for First Communion, Confirmation, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day.

Dear Fellow Pilgrim,

It is my great privilege to invite you to join our spring pilgrimage to France and Switzerland. In 2018, the Vincentians are celebrating their 200th Anniversary of arrival in Perryville, Missouri, and the Association of the Miraculous Medal is celebrating our 100th Anniversary with an inspiring pilgrimage to the lovely Chapel of the Motherhouse of the Daughters of Charity, in Paris, where Our Blessed Mother appeared to St. Catherine Laboure. This beautiful chapel continues to be the center of devotion to our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. We will have ample time to pray in this sacred place during our stay in the City of Light. In Paris, we will also visit the Chapel of the Vincentian Motherhouse where the remains of St. Vincent de Paul are enshrined, the Cathedral of Notre Dame, as well as other sacred and historic sites.

In addition, those who wish will have the option of joining Fr. John Rybolt, C.M., internationally known Vincentian historian and author, and me on a visit of Vincentian Family sites in Paris, including sites associated with St. Vincent, St. Louise de Marillac, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and Blessed Rosalie Rendu. Fr. Rybolt will be with us throughout our pilgrimage helping us to understand and appreciate the Vincentian charism.

Departing Paris, we will visit the Laboure farmhouse where St. Catherine was born, beautiful Chatillon-sur-Chalaronne where St. Vincent founded the first Confraternity of Charity, and Lyon where Blessed Frederic lived as a young boy and where he was married. On our way to Switzerland, we will visit the alpine town of Annecy to pray at the tombs of St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane Frances de Chantal who were closely associated with St. Vincent.

Finally, we conclude our pilgrimage in the wonderful city of Geneva.

To Jesus through Mary,
Fr. Kevin, C.M.

Summer break is almost over. Students and educators throughout the country will soon be returning to school. If you know someone returning to school – a child, teenager, adult, teacher, or staff member, please send me their names so they may be included in the prayers and Masses offered at our Lady’s Shrine for the entire school year.  Send your loved ones our new “Back to School” Votive Light card to let them know you are praying for them. You might also want to give returning students and teachers their very own Miraculous Medal attached to a lobster-claw clasp.  Read Fr. Kevin’s letter about returning to school and the quest for truth and knowledge through Jesus and his Blessed Mother.

On June 20 of 1832, two long years after Saint Catherine Labouré received the image of the Miraculous Medal from our Lady, the first 2,000 medals were struck and made ready for distribution. Catherine looked upon these inaugural medals and said, “Now it must be propagated.”

As you know from your faithful membership in our Lady’s Association, tens of millions of medals were distributed in the first eight years of production alone, and countless millions more have been propagated since!

This past Lent, the Association invited you and all her members to join together in giving our Blessed Mother a special birthday present. We challenged one another to give out a total of one million Miraculous Medals before Mary’s birthday on September 8.

Well CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU! Not only did we meet our goal, but because of your help, we surpassed it with a total distribution of 1,730,305 medals. What a wonderful birthday gift we were able to present to our Blessed Mother!
